Vintage Ad and poster

Okay everyone, I'm looking for vintage Daimler/Mercedes ads and or posters. I'm especially interested in the the 20's and 30's. Mercedes merger and others available. I have tried other places, ebay, craigslist, poster sites, and all the major top searches that come up on google and amazon. Please let me know if you know anyone or anywhere.

Your best bet may be with some of the larger auction houses with a memorabilia sale coinciding with a large car auction or concours. Bonhams just had some really incredible pieces earlier in the year, primarily racing themed MB posters from the 50's and 60's. Some signed by drivers. Also there tend to be more and better choices at auctions in countries like UK, Germany and Australia during events like Goodwood, etc.
Here's a few examples for you:
Bonhams 1793 : A Mercedes Benz 'victory' poster for the 1939 Grosser Preis von Tripoli,
Bonhams 1793 : A Mercedes-Benz advertising poster, (Reproduction)
Bonhams 1793 : A Mercedes-Benz Berlin Grand Prix victory poster, 1954,
Bonhams 1793 : A Mercedes-Benz 1955 Successes poster flyer for the Belgian Grand Prix,

This one is upcoming: http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/20165/

As you can see, not out of reach and if you bid your price on enough you will likely end up with one or two. There is usually an option for phone or internet bid as well so you would not need to travel to the physical auction location. Good luck!

Sir,
I misunderstand you.
Would you like to buy originals or the copies be enough?

From 1886 up to 2011. But, not too many. I didn't count them...
